Recently, I went on a walk to help the Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center raise money for autism. My cousin is 7 and was diagnosed with autism at age 4. He has been with SARRC ever since it’s been in existence.
SARRC opened its 18,000-square-foot campus in March 2005, and from then on, has helped several autistic boys and girls like my cousin. There are many ways to help this brilliant organization. You can help by purchasing a gift, giving in-kind donations, or even volunteering, like I did.
First, you can help SARRC help families that are dealing with autism every day. You could purchase Zazzle stamps with SARRC’s customized postage stamps. The organization also has customized T-shirts, mugs, and posters you can buy. You may even design your own Zazzle products and select SARRC to receive the royalty. Up to 27 percent of the proceeds are donated to SARRC’s kids. You can also buy charity charms, as well. Charity charms are beautiful sterling silver charm designed especially for SARRC. By buying a charity charm, you send 75 percent of your payment to this organization. It also makes a wonderful gift for someone who has been touched by autism. Charity charms help promote the awareness of autism, too.
Subsequently, SARRC can also accept in-kind donations to help their kids. They will take any available vehicles, goods or services donated. You can donate your old, unwanted truck or RV to help support this organization through America’s Car Donation Charity Center. Your car will conveniently be picked up at your home or office and is tax deductible as well. Any goods are also accepted by SARRC. You may also donate items on their wish list. SARRC has a wish list that has a lot of items they would like to have for their foundation or items that they would use to hold special events. If you have any other items you would like to donate, you can call SARRC at (602) 340-8717.
Most importantly, all kinds of volunteering are welcome at SARRC. Anyone willing to volunteer at any special events will be greatly appreciated. You could run booths at any type of special event. You may walk for a fundraiser and raise money for SARRC and other kids with autism. Even working at their office in Phoenix is of very much help to SARRC.
You may be able to do many office duties. You can sort or fill out paperwork or organize rooms or closets, or SARRC will assign you jobs by your skills, specialized talents or preferred position.
Help young kids like my cousin by helping SARRC. Help out Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center by purchasing a gift, donating or volunteering. Help SARRC and brighten many young kids’ lives. Autism is very close to my family because of my cousin, and SARRC has helped us through our journey with autism. They’ve helped several hundred families, along with mine. With your help you could turn those hundreds into thousands.
